Not ALL posters , sorry may have worded incorrectly.
I just am not naive enough to think that ALL these players claims are 100% BetOnline's fault. Are some of the players innocent maybe , are some of them guilty of collusion/chip dumping/ fraud maybe......
I just am not so quick to smash on the site and say they are shady without knowing full details , which we will probably never know.
I can only go by my experiences with them , and I have been paid a few thousand from their site in a very timely manner (3 - 4 days)..... unlike the US pokersites that I play on and takes weeks to months to get paid.
Like I said before you are guaranteed to see more chip dumping cases with a site that gives a instant bonus to use in the pokerroom than other networks that give you a bonus you must play to reach. You can play legit here and receive your bonus playthrough and see your funds in 3 - 4 days.
Go ahead and win money on Merge , Cake , Everleaf and see how long it takes to withdraw ... you may feel like you have the possibility of never even seeing the money. There is risk at ANY site , and even more so with US players.
I like to know that when I win I can get my funds out in a timely manner , otherwise it just feels like play money that you have to wait quarter to half a year to receive ( cake network , half a year if check bounces )
However as players we will all have our agreements and disagreements as to how safe or unsafe a site maybe , I can only say that I have never had issues with BetOnline paying me max withdrawels but then again I dont do shady ish , I dont even take their instant bonus so one less thing to worry about.
Regardles if you do not trust BetOnline and still would like fast withdrawels I think BetDSI.eu and Bookmaker.eu maybe the most financially secure places you can play with 4 day withdrawel via western union. They are also on a good poker network the Yatahay network.
